The Texans may not have left tackle Duane Brown back in the lineup this week and they definitely won’t have Jeff Adams at left guard, right tackle or anywhere else.

Adams left Sunday’s game on a cart after injuring his knee and it looked like the kind of injury that’s followed by word of an impending trip to injured reserve. That’s just what came on Monday when coach Bill O’Brien met the media in Houston.

“Jeff Adams will be out for the year with a knee injury,” O’Brien said, via the team’s website. “I feel for the guy. The guy really put a lot of effort into this season. He was here all offseason, really improved as a player and those things happen. Those injuries happen.”

Adams started at left guard in Week One and at right tackle in Sunday’s loss to the Panthers as the Texans shuffled their line around with Brown missing the game. They’ll need to do more shuffling now, with 2014 second-rounder Xavier Su’a-Filo a possibility at left guard.
